      I made this with my favorite fish salmon. I used 3 tablespoons of the lemon and oil mixture. Didn`t need more then that. I also made this dish easier then directed. I put all the vegies (Except for the carrots which I didn`t have) right on the fish then double wrapped in plenty of banana leaves. They did burn so it was good I used more then called for. I didn`t serve with the leaf because it was burnt and unappealing. But this was delish! I enjoyed the scent of the banana leaf throughout the fish. the vegies had the prefect texture.
